I bought a Lenovo A806 Smartphone (apparently also known as Golden Warrior) from Hong Kong. Despite being bought from the Chinese market it has Google Play Store installed but it also has Mobomarket and other apps I'd rather not have which cannot be removed with normal deletion methods. I have been told they're probably within the root system.
I am a relative newbie and have discovered a variety of sites and programs which provide both rooting and mod options including Kingroot and Needrom. However I'm reluctant to just steam ahead without gaining approval from someone who knows about this stuff :-)
So my questions are,
Is there a list of available rooting programs/software anywhere on the web?
Does an unrooted phone always have to be rooted before mods can be flashed? Or can I install a new ROM which roots at the same time?
The phone runs 4.4.2. I have a build number if needed.
Many thanks for any advice.
